AT&T's pre-paid GoPhone to have 4G LTE handset on June 21st
If you're a subscriber to AT&T's pre-paid GoPhone service, we have some great news for you. Starting on June 21st, which is next Friday (and the longest day of the year by the way), GoPhone will offer the Samsung Galaxy Express which will bring 4G LTE connectivity to the service. On that day you can also start bringing your own 4G LTE handset to GoPhone.

The Samsung Galaxy Express sports a 4.5 inch Super AMOLED Plus display, although the 480 x 800 resolution (WVGA) could be a little higher. The combination results in a pixel density of 207ppi. A dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus processor is driving the phone which has 1GB of RAM aboard and 8GB of native storage. The latter can be expanded using the 32GB capacity microSD slot, and there is a 2000mAh cell keeping the lights on. The device features a 5MP rear-facing camera capturing video in 1280 x 720 at 30fps. The 1.3MP front facing camera is great for taking"Selfies" and for video chat. Android 4.1 is installed giving users the silky smoothness of Project Butter, the timely information from Google Now and the step-saving actionable notifications. The device will be available online or from AT&T stores for $249.99. You can also find the device at GoPhone distributors.

GoPhone's lowest cost plan is $25 for which you receive 250 minutes of talk, unlimited text and a whopping (dripping with sarcasm) 50MB of data if you pay an additional $5. The next tier is the $40 monthly plan that gives you 500 minutes of yak talk, unlimited text, and 200MB of data. Each additional 100MB of data will cost you $10 more. The $60 plan gives you unlimited talk and text, and 2GB of data for the month. Each additional 1GB of data will cost $10. All of the plans include international texts from the U.S. to Mexico, Canada and 100 other countries.
